don't know the total but I have 99 for 1004 & that's enuf for tonight....g'nite
I have 106 for 1218.
didn't quite make it...saw a 7 for 40 & 8 for 55 - starts with P
got them both already
have nine 6"s, three 7"s and one 8
An eight for 110!
WOW!! Any clues?
VERY similar to the 7 for 76.
I found it!!
stuck at 111.......good night all.
I keep seeing PREFECT ;-((
there's an 8 for 110 out there
Tell me more!
There's a key 5 for 34 on which to build a lot of the high-point longer words.
Haven't found the 7 for 40 or the 8 for 55, but I have 7s for (in alpha order) 28, 52, 36, 76, 76, in addition to the 8 for 110.
123 / 4.64 / 1575
What letter does the 7 for 28 start with?
i have two that are 7 for 40, one starts with a p the other one a r
i have two 7 for 76
Why on earth doesn't it take prepound and prepounds???
I wish it would take ectozoon - but the letter is in the wrong place..... but it is such a cool word!
7 for 28 starts with "O"
Right, I need to go and do something a bit more productive....

I have 4 Ds...
I have 8xD, 11xL, 25xT, 2xZ
9 x D lol
And I thought I was IT! haha
hee hee - 10xD
any more help fo rthe 7-76? I looked forever last night & could night find it.
jayferg - Do you have the 5/34 it's based on? If not, start there. There aren't many ways to make a 5-letter word for 34 points . . .
i don't have it. does it start with R?
smacking my head....just got it. thanks.
i have 2 7 for 76. They start with r and a u. Both have the same base word as the one for 110
i can't believe i just got the 8 for 110! how am i supposed to go out now, lol.
morning all..do we have a word count on this bad boy yet? or anyone wanna divulge what their top score is so us normal low rankers can get a few words?
I'm at 156/2012 and word count by starting letter was posted below by a few of us.
Solver says there are 202: 2x8, 12x7, 30x6, 59x5, 99x4 but use those numbers with caution. :)
thx jlm....something for me to strive for saw the starting word count so that will help...good luck and happy hinting to all
Goodmorning, y'all -- this humungeous word must contain Z and F or Y, right???
Aaaww, maybe this'll be the day I don't play, but then I'll go crazy, all day, trying to figure that darned word...
Lx12 and Sx24...
Christine - The most useful clue for this word is that it starts with a 5/34. Find that, and build to find the 2 large 7s and the large 8. :)
11 x D LOL
jlm_mi -- 5 tiles totalling 17 points, would need to use a 10, a 4, and three ones.... starting with R, that seems to give us a verrry odd word??
any hints on the 5/34?
It doesn't start with R. Not sure where that misconception came from.
It will feel like Christmas when you get it.
i feel stupid.. that 5/34 was right there staring at me!
14xD This is a very funny race!
Wwlllll, I have that!! actually, it was the first word I found, afte I saw which tile was the highest value.... now, am I supposed to be able to build on that word, to get the 76- and 110-point words??
Oh boy, here we go again... good thing I'm retired, I have no life away from Babble.
Yes. 3 different prefixes give you 7/76, 7/76 and 8/110.
Ahaaa.... as I sent the last chat, I realized God invented PREfixes, as well as suffixes.....
Success came in, and hit me between the eyes.
the starting with R was last night when they gave a clue to the 7/76
Well, that's the problem solved - I've not been to sleep, read thru' the night'
A senior moment ... of course, I meant 'solution', not 'success'... ah me..
So let's talk 7s. I have:
I only have seven 7s, but some are different:
nope - nor more than that. But I'm determined to get a 15th D LOL
Mine 7s go: 36, 32, 40, 40, 28, 52, 36, 40, 40, 76, 76. Hope this helps. Does anybody know how many we are playing for today?
Great use of English in my last post eh??! LOL
Kirsty - Thanks for the 7s. The stats I have are posted at 10:04.
So what does the 8/110 start with? I got the 5/34, and the 7 letter one. Maybe I'm having a stupid day, but i do not see the 8-letter word.
Got 'em all.
The 5, the 2 7s and the 8!
now at 58/914
jenleigh - There are 2 7s based on that word, both with prefixes. The 8 is also a prefix (but, of course, a 3-letter one). Given the points, you can see that the prefix for the 8 must contain a letter worth 3 points. It is only 1 letter different from one of the 7s.
Kirsty - Do those first 2 40-point 7s start with the same letter?
the arctic is....
I won't take 'zoot'!! Don't these people know anything about fashion from the 1920's?!?
Jlm - yep :o)
I thought zoot suits were 1940s. ;)
Thanks. Not what I wanted to hear. ;) But it should be helpful.
"I thought zoot suits were 1940s. ;)"
Hummmm, I think your are right. Anyhow, it should be accepted. I wonder is its considered a proper noun. If 'zoot' was person...one way to find out...dic.com.
It's a shame that zoot isn't accepted, and yes, it was 1940s. You can learn more here if you're bored. :-D
Christine - No, I think it was referring waaaay back to the 5/7/7/8 combo.
The first one is a herbicide and the second is an arena for a particular game. I came across the second one by chance and am quite quite sure that the dictionary definition wouldn't have helped me out much! Still, I hope it's of use to you :o)
Thanks for the link, jlm.
I have the arena one - by chance. :) I'll look for the herbicide, probably the same way. :-p
I see that and ozone every $@#$ time I look at this puzzle!
there are three 7/36s--that plus Kirsty's list gives us the right number from the solver...
parsec - Do you have any idea where they fit in the list? Or just in with whatever you already have would be good.
it's next to the second 36.
Got it, thanks!
So, the 7s are:
too bad there aren't quite enough Os for 'oloroso.' What a neat word!
what does the 52 7 start with?
the 52 is a P.
Another starting letter tally, hopefully someone else will help me compare here:
11xL (at least 12)
18xR (at least 19)
23xS (at least 24)
5xU (at least 6)
Here's mine, for 193/2638:
13xD (missing at least one)
7xN (missing five or so)
18xR (missing at least one)
5xU (missing one)
Got the 7/52.
Thanks for the starting letter.
grrrr...i can't get those 7's. I only have 4.
I would say that four of the 7's are words that are not commonly known. But, given point values and relative location in the list, can be gotten with persistent noodling. Probably 4 others are not particularly common words, though many people would know them if they heard them.
hahahah rolling on the floor it took a slang...hahahaha
Do you mean the 5-letter N word? I think I've seen that one taken before. It's a funny word!
nope the 5 letter p word
i think i've seen that word before in another puzzle and it's also a proper name so it just made me laugh at the definition
Oh, that one. Yeah, giggles here too. :-D
Thanx for the letter tally it`s a great help .I`ve got 175/2322 so far.I have 9 /7`s should there be more?
Yep, more. See 10:04 (for words per length) and 1:35pm for 7s specifically.
found all 12 C's
on to the D's
Minski - There may be more than 12 Cs. That's what I've found so far, and no one has posted finding more yet, but I'm still 20 words short of the total.
can someone spare a clue for that fourteenth D? I have 1x6, 3x5 and the rest are 4. What am I missing?
and that still only makes 201, when the solver thought 202.
Right, those 12 Ns. :-p
And yep, I actually had found 13 C words, but only marked 12 on my list. So I thought I knew which 20 letters I still had to find, but I only know 19. Where's the other word?!?!?
OK, no need to panic yet. Still have 19 known words to find, LOL.
Are all of the U words un- words?
all of mine are, jlm_mi. 3x6, a 7, and a 4, yes?
Yes, that's what I have too.
well the missing one is either a six or a four, but knowing that is not helping me much.
There is one u word not begining with un
can i get a hint for the 5/34? i figure if i can get that and then the 7 and the 8 then i can go to the dr's office and to olive garden for dinner with a clearer conscious
Now I have all 13 C's.
Back to the D's.....
In the wintertime (in some climates) it gets cold and some things >>>>>>>>>
parsec .It`s a 6/18
Karin - I don't know why it happens, but your posting that made it jump out at me! I've been trying that all day without the last letter, thinking verb-ish. Don't know why I couldn't complete it earlier.
thanks, Karin. now I just have to find that last pesky R, and of course, the mystery word.
So, parsec, if you have all those words, that means maybe you can help me with the Os! I have the 7 and 5x4. Do you know the lengths of the other 2?
k got the 5 and the 7 now for the 8 thanks for the hints
jlm, I imagine you are missing the last two Os--a 6 and a 4.
um ok got the 5 34 and then the 2 76's one 8 and one 7...but how do you get to 110???? looking looking
The 2 76's are both 7s. The 8 is similar to one of them. Work out the points to figure out how many point letter you need to add . . .
And thanks parsec - very helpful!
oh drat jlm you're right..they're both 7's doh!
anyone have more than 2 six-letter R words?
jlm_mi. My O`s are: 1x7, 1x6 & 6x4
Thanks - got the O's from parsec's clue. On to 1xR and 1xE now, then the rest . . .
oh happy dance got the 110!!!
now i won't feel so bad eating my olive garden....breadsticks and salad here i come
thank you jlm
parsec or Karin - are you still around? Any luck finding that last R? I also only have 2x6 that start with R.
Still here I`ve only got 2x6 R`s too
They are : 6/24 & 6/21.
Karin - Do you have all 19 Rs? I have only 18: 9x4, 5x5, 2x6, 2x7
i have 7 4's, 3 5's, 1 6, and 2 7's in r's
Am I missing any?
No I`ve only got 17 at the moment just looking for the other 2
How about a MEANING/definition hint on the biggies...thanks in advance.
jlm_mi. Now I have the same as you .Any luck yet ?
jennbee - early on, there are a lot of clues to the base word (F7/34) - cold, arctic, Christmassy - and you know it needs the Z and a 4 to get 17points... then think prefixes, and you too can do the happy dance.
one of the 7's uses the same base word of the 110 and is worth 76 points
got two of the three -thanks guys!
This is a goody -- 8 letters 110 points.
Karin - No luck here. I've been stuck at 187/2514 for several hours now.
